He is right. The new SM codex power of the machine spirit is now bs 4, instead of the old bs 2 that the BT had to use.

space wolves get the 3+ inv. storm shields, and the bs 4 machine spirit. Its a case of new updates to rules. The older codexs have the older rules, as they were balanced at that time for that use. So you cant use the BS 4 machine spirit or 3= inv save storm shields rules in the DA or BT armies.

Newer Space Marine codices use the newer versions of the rules. PotMS being the vehicle's BS, storm shields giving 3++, etc. This includes Codex: Space Marines, Space Wolves, and (soon to be) Blood Angels.

The older books use the old rules - Storm Shields being 4++ in close combat only, and PotMS only being able to be used if the vehicle did not move over 6" (most people miss this part; I had it pointed out to me, lol) and at BS2. This includes Templar, Dark Angels, and both books of the Inquisition.

Exception: via the FAQ, Grey Knight Land Raiders use the new rules for PotMS.
